Imagine you just blogging right after a loved one passes away, than, “bam!” you get overwhelmed in the process. This is exactly what one WordPress.com blogger did last month, after his wife died. Living in the United Kingdom, near Hunwick, County Durham, England – George White, 92, pulled the live support system on his blog, "GreyCavalier" shortly after Christmas, according to a media report on mashable.com.
George’s story of his wife’s death spread rapidly across the internet and he became indebted with comments and more. At 92 years old, one could imagine getting a generous does of comments and more, as you start to blog about the loss of a loved one to an unknown audience that becomes a breeding ground for therapy and more.
It’s amazing how one man can make a difference in a time of grieve, agony and loss – it makes reminds me of my own loss, pain and suffering at the times, losing my own family members and loved one’s throughout the years of my life. If blogging had been around in the early 1980’s, I probably would’ve started writing and blogging back in my high school days. But, the internet was still new to some and blogging wasn’t yet – a household name, until the 1990’s of the late twentieth-century – in the minds of a writer, it makes simples sense, that blogging is a remedy for perfection and medicine, when one’s heart is roasted in grieve.
